Ever wonder how a painting evolves?  Here are some examples from start to finish:

Calla Lily
Starting with a colored background, I worked my way from back to foreground. In the end I was left with merely “punching up” the contrast and shading.  I like using a colored background to set the tone of the painting and to prevent white spots from showing through at the end.

This particular piece was rather straightforward.  I made no major changes along the way.  I simply worked from back to foreground, and up the stack of donuts.  Krispy Kreme fans will recognize the back of the "Hot Now" neon sign in the background.
